Hey everyone! Oh my gosh, I have found the cutest purse! I walked in to the store and the color (pumpkin!) just lept out at me. What an easy way to amp up an outfit! And it’s 1/3 off which never happens, so if you love it as much as I do you have until September 25th to get it or one of the other beautiful colors like midnight blue or burgundy or one of the more classic colors.
I don’t care for big logos on bags, I just want the bag to be functional and pretty without being a walking advertisement. This has a lock on it with a small logo but the logo is a duck! How cute is that? Also, as a sturdier woman, I have to take into account the size of the purse. If it is too small, I look like a giant. This size fits my frame perfectly I’d say!
Every fashion advice article I read says to invest in shoes and bags, if you’re going to spend your money anywhere. However I often buy less expensive bags because 1. the cost! and 2. they are trendy and will go out of style. However, those bags end up ripping or falling apart and really only last one season and that is really disappointing. Ok, yes, they’re often fake leather (i.e. vinyl) and $30 or less so what do I expect? Sometimes though I just like a nice bag that’s soft to the touch and comfortable to carry around and if it has that extra zing that adds to an outfit then I don’t mind spending a bit more. Be prepared, you’re going to be seeing this bag a ton on this blog!
I also wanted to try to get a better photograph of this jacket (which is also 30% off too!) since in the last post I featured it, I felt like you couldn’t see the details well. Unfortunately with it being such a dark color paired with my white hair and white pants, the camera kept auto-adjusting and making everything either too bright or too dark so these are the best images I could get without over-processing them. The jacket is actually deep blue but the striped band at the bottom is black and white, which looks so crisp, so it’s easy to pair with either black or blue. And I don’t remember if I mentioned it before, but it has a lot of stretch, even though it looks and feels like denim.
And here is a good idea to start transitioning to fall by wearing your booties with cropped pants. My booties are from last year but here and here are two similar pairs. Actually I wish I had some booties that had peep toes (I’m on the look out for a non-pinching pair) and were a lighter color, because that would be a way to transition your shoes. I guess it’s really just about showing less and less toes! And we’re all way over the old rule of “no white after Labor Day” right? Good, cuz it’s a fresh way to wear jeans in the fall and winter. See you Friday!
